Religion

  • Becoming a member of the family

    Is it just me or do you feel like the world wants to get rid of God?  Many people don’t believe in God, don’t care about God, and don’t want to hear about God, Christ or the Bible. The world in which we live can be pretty tough. Because the world is unbelieving in Christ, its behavior can be wild and sinful.

  • Finding your place

    By NANCY KENNEDY

    A few weeks ago, a caller to our Sound-Off line opened up a can of worms by saying he or she has visited many churches and has concluded that the people who want to pay attention to the sermon sit up front while the people who want to gossip and talk about people sit in the back two rows.

    The caller asked, “Is that a tradition? It seems like every place I go and talk to people it’s the same problem everywhere.”

  • Influencing people

    Do you do anything just like your parents did?  Parents do influence children in certain ways.  You remember the old TV commercial with the father and young son walking by the lake.  Father picks up a rock and throws it skipping across the water.  The young son repeats the father’s action.

    We all have an influence upon others.  Sometimes we sharpen them.  Sometimes we drag them down.  But we do influence people in various ways about many things.

  • How far will love go?

    Years ago, my granddaughter Caroline couldn’t be trusted to not make a run for it in a crowd.

    As a toddler, she was notorious for breaking loose from my daughter’s grasp and taking off running. She was also fearless and overly friendly when it came to approaching strangers and, if given the chance, would follow anyone anywhere, especially if offered candy, a puppy or a sip of Diet Coke.

  • Blessing America

    Arnold Toynbee, the distinguished historian, said, “No major nation has ever been murdered.  They have committed suicide and rotted on the inside.”  I cast my lot with those who believe that our nation is in decline. Our greatest threat is not from without, but within.  We have long been on the path of committing suicide.  Our disobedience to the laws of God seems to be more blatant every year.  If our nation is to remain blessed we must be right before God, live right before men and stand for what is right.

  • When mercy is the severest gift

    Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people about how they came to faith in Christ, or how God delivered them from something that had them bound or how they were drawn closer to God because of a certain situation.

    More often than not, the circumstances that precede the turning point or the epiphany or the moment of surrender or rescue are dire, tragic and painful. Sometimes the painful situation is what God uses to bring a person from no faith to new faith or running from God to running to him.
